The VP-26 Tridents Coin

VP-26 or Patrol Squadron TWO SIX, is a member of Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing ELEVEN, a Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Squadron with a worldwide theater of operations. Mission areas include long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. The VP-26 “TRIDENTS” are home-ported at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida.

During its illustrious history, VP-26 has enjoyed success in a wide variety of areas. the Tridents take the most pride in the six Chief of Naval Operations Safety Awards they have earned. VP-26 achieved these successes while adding to its phenomenal safety record. In the years ahead, the Tridents anticipate more challenging deployments to guard liberty and protect our nation’s interests with ever-more exciting and capable tools in the hands of America’s finest sons and daughters.

We at Embleholics we assigned to manufacture the custom challenge coin for the Tridents. They wanted a challenge coin with a core design taken from their insignia. It’s a compass image with a skull in it, but they wanted to have a bit of uniqueness to their coin, so we made the four compass needles protruding beyond the outline.

On both sides, we machined reliefs of an airplane, a Boeing P-8A, viewed from the front. We also embossed a figure of a trident behind the aircraft and engraved different backgrounds for the front and backside.
